The transition to the new normal
In the months and years to come, offices will become places to collaborate and meet with clients, with large parts of the workforce moving to more flexible models that reduce office presence. How you get to this ‘new normal’, where offices provide fewer desks for the same number of employees, is the key challenge ahead.
Back to the new normal.
Bringing employees back into the office needs careful management so that they can follow ongoing government guidelines to socially distance and keep themselves safe. With a large part of the workforce looking to reduce commute times and work more flexibly, the new normal office will become a place to collaborate and meet with clients, so how desks, workspaces, and sanitization are overseen will change significantly.
